The Bo’ness branch of the SNP has recently launched its campaign to promote registering to vote and registering for a postal vote amongst SNP and independence supporters ahead of the Scottish election on the 6th of May. The campaign has been endorsed by the SNP candidate for East Falkirk, Michelle Thomson.
The branch has stated that the most important reasons for registering for a postal vote is to keep yourself safe from COVID-19, and to make sure that your vote counts, as postal voters are more likely to cast their ballot than those who vote conventionally. If you forget to post your ballot back in time, you can hand it in to your normal polling station on polling day.
Further to this, when you register for a postal vote, you can opt for it to be recurring – so this helps to build strong SNP and Yes turnouts for the future as well. This is why it’s important to encourage your SNP supporting friends and family to register for a postal vote – particularly when you are not entirely sure they always vote!
If you have issues printing the form, please get in touch with Bo’ness branch, and we will get one out to you.
This campaign will be extremely digitally focussed and COVID compliant, with campaign videos, graphics and endorsements from notable people in the community going out on the local branches social media channels. To see these as they come out, you can like and follow Bo’ness SNP’s various social media channels, available here, with more information below.
